Stressful, Unprofessional staff, Unsanitary, Unqualified Supervisors
North Spring Behavioral Health is not your typical work place.
Majority of the older staff members who's been there for years are very mean and aggressive. If you are new staff and they don't like you, the older staff will go out of their way to make you uncomfortable hoping you will quit. There is definitely a "Click" among the staff that works there. Unfortunately, some of the shift leads and supervisors are in this click. There are several staff members who comes to work just to sleep, go out multiple times during their shift to smoke,constantly on their cell phones, and will leave the new staff in the unit to deal with the kids while they are out chatting with their friends in another unit. This goes on everyday, the culture is so negative because of the older staff that were there for awhile and have gotten used to acting unprofessional not only to other staff but also to the kids. Working in North Spring Behavioral Health is definitely a challenge if you are trying to do your job the right way and you are not corrupt. I recommend that the upper management should take a close look on their older staff members and investigate how they work and treat the kids. It is definitely an eye opener. Favoritism, manipulating the schedule, jealous old staff members, sleeping on the job, constantly on their cell phones, smoking and taking breaks multiple times during their shifts, cursing the kids, no call no show, tardiness and staff dating each other are just few of the things that goes on in this place.
